Best so far!

In this exciting installment of the Trials of Apollo series, Apollo tries to find and rescue the Erythraean Sybil from Triumvirate Holdings. While this series is not my favorite of Mr. Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, this is definitely the best. Beware, though, you might cry if you’ve read the other series.
